May 1, 2014 Ellen Page

It hasnít been easy to Ellen Page to finally come out about her sexuality.

However she gathered courage on Valentine's Day that left her feeling most liberating.

In an interview with Elllen Dengeneres, the X-Men: Days of Future Past actress said, "I'm happy to be gay, I'm so comfortable being gay, I love being gay and honestly it wasn't until making that choice in doing that, where I realized like, no, I was carrying a tremendous amount of shame and guilt for not being out and I felt isolated from the LGBT community, and now I don't,"

The 27-year-old revealed that she is gay during an emotional speech at Time to THRIVE conference for promoting the LGBT youth on Feb. 14 in Las Vegas.

"But you know," she told Ellen, "I was so ready to do it and quite frankly so excited to do it, so it was a combination of just such thrill to finally be at that place in my life where I was able to do that. And [I was] grateful to have that moment and grateful to you because you did it at a time where it was much harder and much scarier so it's..."

"It doesn't feel like it at the time but it's a very selfish thing to do," DeGeneres said. "It really is just the most, I mean I can speak forever on it, but how do you feel since you've done it?"

"I did not anticipate just how happy I would feel in just every aspect of my life just an ease and a comfort and it's really been quite extraordinary to feel just the shift it was pretty much overnight too. Just a weight." Page explained.
